PhotoDVD provides you with a wonderful solution for managing your photo collection. The program can create stunning slideshows and videos using any ordinary JPG, TIFF, GIF, ICO, and BMP images, which you can then enjoy on your DVD player. You can use more than 30 types of transitions and special effects to create professional-class slideshows in just a few minutes.

You need to follow three easy steps to create a slideshow using PhotoDVD. First, locate the images you want to include in the slideshow, then add an audio file and even subtitles if required, and you will get a DVD video of your photos in minutes, ready to be burnt on DVD using the program’s built-in DVD burner. This tool can also output the slide shows as YouTube MP4 videos, and split it into smaller parts to make it easier and faster for you to upload it.

The best feature of the program is its video frame and transitions manager, which allows you to add and remove any image from the slide show while playing it. You can use different transitions with the time duration of your choice, and set different delays between each of the images in the presentation. You can also rotate any image while playing a slide show, without the need of an image editor. The program can also calculate and display the total play time and the size of the resulting video, helping you to manage the transitions and the delays in-between images in order to reduce the file size so it fits on a DVD without removing any of the images.

Shortly, the program is one of the best image to video converters and slide show creators I have ever used. Its wonderful video player, the well-managed tool bars and its very flexible slide show manager make the program a perfect tool even for professionals.
